Italy is a cultural journey. Florence, the capital of Tuscany, is the city where the Renaissance began. It is a living museum of art and culture, explore its streets, piazzas, and great works of art and architecture. You will see the Ponte Vecchio, the Uffizi Corridor, and the Duomo. A short drive from Florence transports you into the beautiful Tuscan countryside. Stay in Chianti, among the best-preserved landscapes in Italy, some virtually unchanged since artists depicted them five hundred years ago. The region has large areas of woodlands, interspersed with vineyards and dotted with medieval towns high on hills and ridges. The quality of light here has inspired generations of artists. Everywhere there is something of compelling beauty, curiosity, and interest — brilliant architecture, classic Tuscan landscapes, the daily life of the people themselves, providing continuity between past and present. There are options of traveling to other distinct destinations, such as Venice. The trip’s leisurely pace will provide ample opportunity to wander through medieval hill towns, and feast on the renowned regional foods and wines.
The accommodations we have chosen combine simple elegance with excellent location. In Florence, stay at one of the city’s best-kept secrets. This small, family-run hotel is in an ideal location, just a block from the Arno River and the Ponte Vecchio. The hotel offers us a special treat, from which it takes its name; it contains the tallest privately owned tower (torre) in Florence. It is worth the climb to the tower’s terrace to enjoy the stunning panorama of the city. In the Tuscan countryside, stay at a meticulously restored country villa. It provides an absolutely perfect location for country walks and day trips to Tuscan hill towns and villages. A light breakfast is served, and a traditional Tuscan meal in the evening.
